Look Down: I'm in the Wheelchair

I didn't send out our Holiday cards this year. There were about 400 million reasons, from my hand cramping while trying to write your address to me just being lazy. But I'm sort of mad I didn't, because I need you to see me. See me as I am. As I am, right now, if I need to do anything that would require more than a walk around the block. I need you to see me in a wheelchair. ...more

A Month of Movies: Poor Marky Mark, No Best Actor Oscar Nomination for "The Fighter"

Get Over Yourself

I'm not greeting the new year with resolutions; I'm greeting it with a wish: I want you to get over yourself. Scratch that: I want you to give yourself permission to get over yourself. To put your defensiveness, anxiety, and hesitation aside, so you can engage more honestly and productively with the world around you, and we can all be happier. Need illustrative examples? No problem -- I've been hoarding them. ...more
